Vot­ing dead­line

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE -

The dead­line to apply to reg­is­ter to vote in the Nov. 7 gen­eral elec­tion is this Mon­day, Oct. 16. The sim­plest way (granted you have In­ter­net ac­cess) to ei­ther reg­is­ter or else up­date your ad­dress in­for­ma­tion is to visit the Vir­ginia Depart­ment of Elec­tions (ELECT) web­site at elec­tions.vir­ginia.gov.

Cus­tomers may also apply to reg­is­ter at the reg­is­trar’s of­fice on Gay Street in Washington or at any of the Vir­ginia Depart­ment of Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles (DMV) cus­tomer ser­vice cen­ters. Cit­i­zens are not reg­is­tered to vote un­til a pa­per or on­line voter reg­is­tra­tion ap­pli­ca­tion is ap­proved by the reg­is­trar. Once an ap­pli­ca­tion is ap­proved, a reg­is­tra­tion con­fir­ma­tion let­ter will be snail mailed.

To be el­i­gi­ble to reg­is­ter to vote in Vir­ginia you must be a res­i­dent of the state, a U.S. cit­i­zen, 18 years old (any per­son who is 17 and will be 18 by Nov. 7 may reg­is­ter), not be reg­is­tered and/or plan to vote in any other state, and “not cur­rently be de­clared men­tally incompetent by a court of law.”
